"Better is a handful of quietness than two hands full of toil and a striving after wind" Ecclesiastes 4:6.
I'll be the first to admit it: I'm maybe not the best listener. At work, three-quarters of my concentration is devoted to my computer, another 20 percent to my coworkers and the last five percent to superfluous text conversations. At home, I'm sometimes no better, dividing my attention between TV, my laptop and phone.
Multitasking has become the type of skill we brag about on our resumes, but it leaves little time for listening and reflection. I fail to truly think about my actions or outside events at times, and that's when sins --mine or others -- start to creep in unnoticed and unchallenged.
Lord, help me to consider the true consequences of my actions and to recognize injustice when it happens.
